This recipe is my own version of a salad I had at a restaurant. The fresh dates and honey mustard vinaigrette make it stand out from other similar salads I have tried.
Any time walnuts or pecans are used in a salad, I am tempted to "candy" them. The honey in the dressing and the natural sweetness of the dates allows the nuts to be used simply toasted.
I love this salad. It is light and exceptionally flavorful.
